This version eliminates the 'frying' step, instead the eggplant is roasted, which concentrates the flavor. While not traditional, I love the added ricotta 'lasagna' layer that serves as the protein. I like the eggplant to shine, so I do not add too many herbs or spices. A wonderful dish!

This is also called Spatchcocking, I don't know WHY, but it is! I put the game hen on my cutting board and with my big chefs knife cut through the breast bone and then flatten it out. You can also ask them to do it for you at the meat counter in your supermarket. I love Cornish Game Hens, they are super juicy.

Omg... corn? Oh no, not evil corn. Yes, corn... cutting an ear of fresh corn into rounds gives everyone a taste and adds about 3 carbs to your meal. THREE CARBS! It's clean and fresh and flavorful and tastes so good with the pan juices. What a meal... try this one.

You can use mussels and shrimp as I have chosen for this version, or create your own favorite, using scallops, clams, crab, or even a whole fish filet or cubes of a firm fish such as swordfish or mahi.

If you have any doubt as to the unhealthiness of Chinese cuisine, look at the Nutrition Page of Pei Wei Asian Bistro. I wondered WHY I was so sleepy and sick after eating there and to my shock discovered that the Beef and Broccoli I chose had over 40 grams of sugar.
